Why in the world didn't we sign UDFA Case Keenum??
 
Look at his numbers. He threw 48TD/5INT in his last year. I don't care if he was playing little league kids. Those numbers are insane. What were we thinking? PC should have spoken up!

Maybe we tried but he didn't want to sit behind Brees for 5 years.

It's not like he would have seen the field much if at all. Drew has it locked up for the next few years

Not to mention Chase Daniel isn't bad either.

He's definitely got great passing skills, leadership, intangibles, character, etc. It would make all the sense in the world to take a young player and groom him as a backup QB. Except ...

1) we only have room for 53 players on the roster
2) We have to have room for our special teamers and also key backups at various positions
3) We couldn't get Keenum to the practice squad without exposing him to waivers and having him get sniped by another team.
4) We'll probably need extra defensive bodies on the roster for the forthcoming suspensions
5) We committed to Chase Daniel with a contract extension and due to the roster limitations, usually only keep 2 QB's

Keenum would be a no-brainer for us or most any other team. Except the NFL and players union isn't set up to develop players, like MLB or NBA. It's set up to throw rookies into the fire, bring in "camp bodies" and put the lot of them out on the street. The NFL/union should have a developmental squad that doesn't involve the waivers and limitations the practice squad has. But $$$ for the NFL and NFLPA wins the battle outright over developing talent, which is a sad outcome.

Maybe Loomis was busy signing players rated higher on his board.

Fine! Be Captain Obvious. :)

Because; I have a source that tells me that we didn't get him because he knows a guy that used to play softball with a friend that once gave a lift to a girl that dated a guy that knew Scott Shanle.

The F.O. figured he was too risky.

Shanle is a butt sniffer!!!!!!

Our next QB is a sophmore in college this year. Too early to pick one up right now for Drew's sucessor.
